    Returned to Onestream after being with the Post Office on a wet piece of string. Onestream service is superb.
    Spoke to Matthew who dealt with my requirement to return to Onestream Fibre. Very professional and helpful. Highly recommended.

    Had onestream for over six months now. Really happy with the service, changeover went without a hitch, they are cheaper than my last supplier and the speed and latency are superb! I'd say give them a try personally, big thumbs up from me.

    I'm reasonably happy with the connection I've experienced so far. Nice and fast, and the package was discounted when I started so very cheap.
    Customer service is varied; I gave one rep a 5 star review he absolutely deserved, but I had others I'd happily drown for the good of humanity, including an email from a snarky manager.
    Be aware they ship routers with outdated firmware from 2018 when there were serious issues with the FBI and Avast flagging known DDoS and Cryptohacking attacks; Avast Threat Landscape Report 2020 expected increases in these and there is evidence of personal data being grabbed when going through comprimised routers.
    The Technicolour router they supplied me has no auto-firmware update meaning that security patches are not updated. They currently have no services for customers to download firmware updates and I have asked for this security concern to be escalated.
    In fairness, they are NOT the only ISP who does this, and I have confidence that they will address this glaring issue promptly to demonstrate a leading role among ISP's.

    tl;dr Reset the chat if you're landed with a dork and try again; excellent speed; wave their failings publically and watch them shine; learn internet security, it's YOUR responsibility too.

    Broadband was fine with good broadband speed. 8 Months into the contract and in the middle of the Corona lockdown they cut of my service without any warning, phonecall or email. Customer services were then entirely uninterested in helping me get set back up. Would not recommend and am now with an alternative provider.

    Terrible company, just fob you off on the phone and never reply to emails.
    2 months waiting for activation date and terminated my old Vodafone service leaving me without broadband for 2 weeks.
    Took money for 1st months service despite not even letting me know when I will be activated.
    Was finally given activation date and was told by email to make sure someone is home to recieve bt engineer or will incur £120 fine. Guess what? They never showed so waited in all day for nothing. And when I called them was told we dont know why you were sent that email? Absolutely terrible company.

    All was OK until I tried to switch the account and billing to my partner before I left him. It seems he has not been paying so they reinstated my D/D without my knowledge or authority and charged me for 2 months. They will not talk to me (GDPR) because it's not longer my account but they think they can bill me! Thankfully my bank has sorted it out (I hope). Worst customer service ever.

    Joined onestream at the beginning of June 2018, contract was up for renewal this month so i signed up for 36mps at £23.99 a month. Just recieved my first bill, £34.99, and when checking thier website its now listed as 34.99. Customer service doesnt exist, lost my first router in the post (hermes). Only plus was good reliable speed. I'm now attempting to get out of this new contract which i did'nt sign for and can't afford.

    I have not had problems with the speed or reliability of the connection with OneStream, however, I was unable to use my Chromecast with it, I was paying 3 times the price of what I thought I would be paying but the worst was when I received a letter to say that OneStream would take legal action against me, despite, themselves having broken the terms of our contract, despite myself informing them in writing that I do not agree to the new proposed terms and I wish to cancel my connection and despite having already been assured by OneStream's customer service via email that the account was closed and no amount was owed. It is outrageous being threated with legal action for not having done anything wrong, just because OneStream are incapable of keeping up with their records. Also, there is no means of speaking to anyone during COVID. Appalling service overall.

    Unfortunately the 66 mbps offer at point of sale was not to materialise after a month of being with one stream.

    I got 10-12 mbps over the past two days.

    WiFi I get up to 45 mbps DOWN (on a good day).

    Wired Ethernet cable I get no higher than 45 mbps DOWN.

    Customer service is nonexistent. You cannot get hold of anyone. They say three days to reply to emails as calling them is (they say) a five minute wait. It’s way longer than five minutes.

    I came from Sky and it was expensive for what they gave me but it was well worth the customer service. One stream do not like customers, clearly.

    The hub you get is the cheapest bit of plastic going and I would suggest getting a decent hub.

    In all I’d say if it sounds too good to be true… it usually is.

    Faultless transition from Vodafone but no communication via email wont answer the phone, the broadband is ok but the router is rubbish so terrible wifi now in the house, seems to have a password on the router so I cannot copy the profile and use a better one. To say the router is 'super duper' is a lie it's the cheapest one availible. Shame on you. Especially charging 9.99 for it probably cost less than that.

    To appreciate how genuinely bad Onestream are here is just one email in a string of communications between us:

    Written 25th March 2021:

    Yes, I do want a call tomorrow please.

    I do not accept your point of view. I am concerned by constant errors and poor service, and I don't appreciate your prior or latest written response:

    "...there isn’t anything else I can advise on. We’ve spotted an overcharge and have remedied it"

    Perhaps you could contemplate how poorly this, and your previous unclear written statement, appear to a customer.

    The fact is we've not been with you very long, but face yet another charging error. I am deeply concerned by the bills we've received to date all being massively over prior contractual cost expectations.

    As a result we have no idea how much we've actually spent per month to date. I have no visibility of the amounts of various refunds or dates of refunds being applied. I cannot assess whether credits have been applied correctly. I have no idea how much my monthly bill run-rate is or forecast what it will be. I'm frustrated by the contract tariff vs. actual costs and cannot easily audit cost variances to date; The billing errors, credits applied, numerous amendments, poor visibility of transaction dates, with no clarity of refunds, all add to the general chaos surrounding Onestream.

    In addition we've had to buy a BT home hub system to boast the WiFi signal because Onestream is the weakest home WiFi we've ever had.

    We can't get the usual caller display we've consistently had with other suppliers. We don't have a phone messaging system which has been free with every other supplier.

    I bought this service based on perceived lower costs yet in reality this is the most expensive and troublesome phone-wifi package we've ever had. That shocks me.

    To frustrate matters even further, the Onestream communication lines are a disgrace; the chat system is unresponsive and you don't take phone calls. I am solely reliant on this cumbersome email method.

    Genuinely I'm counting the days to being able to switch suppliers.

    In summary, Onestream has not provided a good technical service on any level to date. It's proving far more expensive than anticipated with excessive billing errors. Onestream customer services is not fit for purpose by any standards.

    So, yes please, I would like a call tomorrow.

    The agenda should include, but not be limited to the following:

    1. I'd like to explain my frustration your response caused and reiterate how bad it is to be one of your customers.

    2. I want a full explanation of our billing, credits, and refunds in total to date.

    3. I want a financial billing summary sent to us. Our business accountant can then confirm there is no mis-charging, that refunds and credits have been applied correctly and physically recieved to ensure there is no potential for fraud.

    I look forward to speaking with you and hope you can approach the call with an appreciation of how frustrating it is to deal with Onestream.

    Yours sincerely

    I am in general satisfied with the internet speed etc. However, I do not understand their management policy in term of refunds. In the first month, I mistakenly paid the invoice twice. I requested them to refund one of the payment since they owe some money from me. However, they refused to refund. I found that some UK companies have this kind of malicious practice, and it seems that Onestream is one of such company.

    The fact that the company charge £10 for a late payment, which I've attempted to resolve the same day I received the text notification, is poor form. A fine of this type only serves to punish further customers who are likely already struggling financially, and there are apparently no grounds for appeal. I know this is a typical aggravated customer catchphrase but this, for me, is enough to mean that I'll be leaving Onestream as soon as I'm out of contract, and I'll be spreading reviews to ensure other potential customers know about this slithery policy. This is absolutely not the time or the climate to be issuing fines; people are struggling, and the higher-ups in this company don't have an ounce of humanity between the lot of them, it seems. The shareholders and CEOs might walk past a £10 note in the street but for me and a lot of customers, that's shopping for the week, or public transport for a few days. I'm incredibly disappointed, and quite hurt.

    When I moved house they could not provide broadband in the new location. They then said they would cancel my contract due to this.
    A month later they charged me again so i phoned them, eventually getting through and spoke to someone else who said they'd cancel it again for me and refund the extra charges.
    Now the next month there is no sign of my refund and they have just billed me again claiming that my contract was never cancelled. This is three times I have had confirmation of it being cancelled and still been charged.

    One of the worst providers we have been with. Switched from Virgin Media to avoid early cancellation fee (moving house soon and Virgin is all 18-month contracts for existing customers). Wish I had just stuck with them now to be honest! Broadband drops off at least twice a week. Not great when working from home either!

    My line was taken away from me without my permission and OneStream says this was by BT while BT has no record of this, so OneStream tried forcing me to pay £30 to get the line back or the early cancelation fee because they made a mistake, it took weeks for them too say I can have my internet back without the extra fee, it was supposed to take 14 days but after 14 days there was still nothing, contacted them again and was told this would take ANOTHER 14 days meaning I will be 40 days out of internet for absolutely no reason, you can see why they have such bad ratings, I will be changing providers the exact day that my contract is done.

    Avoid at all costs - the actual broadband was patchy and slow (although not unbearable).

    The worst bit though was in the middle of our contract they claimed they could no longer afford the discount set out in the contract and raised the price from £13 to £25/month. Shortly after the price rise kicked in they then lowered their prices again for new customers.

    Dishonest, disingenuous and just poor.

    At least once a month the internet disconnects for at least 48 hours, one stream claim they don't know when this will happen, but suddenly it'll stop working due to works in the area.
    On the install I was told by the installer that he'd be back after he got a part, he never came back, one week after that someone else came to install the internet, but no one emailed me or rang me, I had to chase,
    I was also recently without internet for a week
    3 times I have spoken to customer service and 3 times I was promised my account would be credited and I would not pay the full amount, especially after I was without internet for a week, which is important when you now work remotely.
    3 times now I have paid the full amount even after being reassured I wouldn't.
    I don't particularly enjoy spending hours wasted on hold to an internet company, but I've probably rang to complain more in the last 3 months then I have in 3 years at my last property (was with BT). I changed because the price seemed very good, but all I can say is I guess you get what you pay for, Unreliable service and a customer service incapable of actually actioning anything.

    Avoid avoid avoid! Been passed from pilar to post. Spoke to nearly all the staff at the customer services department and none could come up with a reason why they haven’t been connected the internet in over a month. They still had the cheek to charge me even though I was promised I wouldn’t have to pay. Even now I’m sitting here without any internet a months and a half later. Worst company ever. I’ve cancelled my contract and gone elsewhere. Complete waste of time.

    Ever since setting up my account with them they have overcharged me. This month they advised me my direct debit had failed and so I rang up to sort this out. They took a payment from my debit card and also took the direct debit. Contacted them regarding the overcharges and the double payment and they refused to refund. The service isn't even that great - very patchy.

    Ok, So I went with Onestream as they were cheap ..really cheap when compared to others. I'm a grown man & should have really known better in fairness.

    Ordered FTTC (Fibre to the Cab) - but the order was then changed to normal Copper dal end to end as there was no capacity in the local exchange for Fibre ...despite me being able to order it via their website. (Strike 1)

    Everything was ok for the first 4/5 months ...not amazing speeds - but enough to work with.
    Then the problems started ......

    All of a sudden my broadband price DOUBLED, and some rubbish email from them claimed this was due to the COVID-19 situation.... How/Why/WTAF ? (Strike 2)

    Last month I had a fault on the line, line had noise on it, broadband would drop out for a few hours at a time. Tried reporting it to them via their amateur website & to be frank about it - I've had better trips to the dentist.
    Was constantly told there was no issue found, it got to the stage where I lost my cool said I was going to a different provider. All of a sudden a 'fault' was detected on my line. I can only put this down to a pure coincidence (Strike 3)

    So to recap, (1) I didn't get what I ordered in the first place. (2) My price has doubled due to a nasty flu like bug (3) They need to be forced to look into problems.

    3 strikes .. I'm out and heading towards Plusnet

    Stay safe & stay clear of Onestream broadband

    The worst WiFi I have ever had, my biggest regret was moving from Sky. I have complained and was told by Onestream that at the router they comply with speed.
    So WiFi must be due to cheap or poor router as this hasn't happened before.

    DO NOT USE ONESTREAM.

    Appalling service - avoid at all costs . We cancelled our autistic daughter’s contract when we moved her out of her property . We paid fully - Oct payment made in nov , nov payment made in dec - she vacated the property nov 21st .
    Onestream then deemed it appropriate to send our daughter emails chasing her for further payment which they said was in arrears , causing unnecessary stress and anxiety . We contacted them and explained that we had paid in full , only to be told it takes up to 30 days for them to process and so we were liable to pay for a service we did not use in a property vacated , because their process is slow ! It begs belief how this company is still operating, especially at a time when people of sound mind aswell as those with specific conditions and mental health issues, are struggling to cope . At no point did anyone from Onestream advise our daughter of this “so called “ 30 day process until we queried their tactics . Suffice to say we paid the £40.37 ... does that mean they win with their tactics .... not if everyone avoids them at all costs ,please read before being fooled by their “best price “ message, you will pay for the poor decision in the long run

    We switched to Onestream as they offered a really good broadband price, faster than BT so we switched but from day 1 we haven't received the full service, constant cut outs for long periods, speed issues, WiFi strength is awful, had to upgrade to a better modem for an extra £10 a month but still it cut out every day multiple times, when called they honestly didn't care we had issues, this week on 5/10/21 our Internet was dead, wouldn't work at all, I called them and apparently it was working, they just thought I rang up for the fun of it, they said they'd give me a call back within 48 hours but it's now Saturday when I can't constact them now till Monday, I've tried on many occasions to get out of the contract but I've been given the constant run around and they will not let us leave without paying the rest of our contract, even though we haven't used Internet in 4 days so far, we've had to take up a new package & line with BT just to get better Internet. PLEASE AVOID Onestream, worst customer service I have ever seen.

    Internet went off Friday evening. Onestream do not offer support at night or on the weekend. If I had known this I would of never signed up. As of now it has been four days and still no internet

    I joined after being with Sky on 15.10.19. The broadband speed is horrendous and if you cancel within the 14 day cooling off period, you have to pay out of your own pocket to return the router that i paid £10 for. DO NOT use this provider, strike a deal with your current provider rather than jump ship for what seems like a good deal. it is CRAP.

    I was with Sky for an 18-month contract with no issues. When it was time to renew, I came across Onestream and noticed it was dramatically cheaper. I thought since it's the same line, then I'd save some money and signed up with them. This was a major mistake...

    Since we've had the line, there has been around a 50% chance that at specifically 8:20 PM every day, the internet will FULLY RESTART and be unusable for 5 mins each time; this gets frustrating went you are in calls trying to work with people.

    Recently things have gotten worse where we will get intermittent packet loss over the day. This causes you and others to break up and not be able to hear each other when in Zoom calls etc.

    I attempted to contact their support team, who ran a single line test, and because nothing was wrong specifically at that time, they just tried to get rid of me by telling me it's probably weak WiFi.....? The whole house is cabled, and I never mentioned using WiFi; it was just a weak attempt to get rid of me.

    I tried to re-explain again that the packet loss is intermittent and not always there - but they refused to accept any reports or escalate the issues telling me it would be £400 if I wanted to cancel today.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS! No actual support is given if you have a problem.

    Avoid. No interest in customer support, and if you escalate anything to the "Executive" team, they will flat-out argue with you and be rude. I am having to take legal action against them. Read the reviews - simply the worst.

    Exceptionally terrible. I've been waiting 2 months for a service from them and they give me nothing but empty excuses time and again. Each time they promise they are doing everything they can, and week after week they do nothing. A truly useless bunch of wastrels. Avoid like the plague if you value your time.

    Never call you back, was fobbed off so many times! Got to the point I cried out of anxiety because of how much I was being fobbed off. Had no internet for weeks at a time, one time over a month! It even happened when I first joined them, and I was in the 14 day cooling off period so tried to switch to another provider but they blocked it because they attempted to contact me a whole week after my initial complaint. I am so happy to be free of them. It's embarrassing I had to get my partner to ring them up and use their deep voice (repeating exactly what I already had stated to them mind you) before I got any compensation. Incompetent. You get what you pay for.
